« on: May 04, 2017, 03:17:05 PM »
Hi all,
Trying to transport myself and my cat to and from San Diego Airport Wed-Sun. What is the best method of transportation.
Wish i still have my spaceship.

Thanks!

If you're new to lyft or the lately controversial uber keep an eye out for incentives. Last year we got a new user credit that covered everything we needed.

Does anyone know about shuttles with the downtown hotels? Only one I know of is the Residence Inn Downtown (the Little Italy one) but while they will take you to the airport I don't know if they would pick you up. (It's not an airport shuttle, just an anywhere-reasonably-close shuttle, pretty cool.)

Uber was great and during the con I got credit that paid for most of my rides. If you need a code let me know.

Hampton Inn Downtown (right next to that Res Inn) has one, and it does pick you up. I used it last year coming and going, and it also picked me up from Balboa Park

I may have to try Lyft. I've always taxi'd, which ends up being around $15-20 to convention center, depending on traffic One time it was way more because of gridlock (Sunday afternoon) and we ended up on the highway to get to the airport.

I don't think any of the big 5 hotels next to the con have shuttles. The smaller ones further out used to have shuttles (like Radisson and Sheraton). Not sure if they still do.

frankly, I will never use a taxi again if lyft is available. my roommate in Orlando is on Uber- our rides to & from the convention center were about the same.

Wow, that's really high. I think our rides to and from Little Italy were around $5 or $6.

I think the first year my mom came she flew into San Diego and I told her to go to the closest airport hotel (not sure which one) and take the comic con shuttle to the convention center.
